The Hell 2 Mod for Diablo: Hellfire Launches

A long awaited second part of popular Diablo: Hellfire mod, The Hell, which adds support for 4K resolution, raises the fps cap (to 80 frames per second) and many other improvements to the iconic game, has been released.

The Hell 2, according to the author, contains more than 50% more content than any other Diablo mod.

Diablo: Hellfire is one of Diablo's longest-developed mods. The work, created and released in 2006 by a modder named Mordor, fixed bugs in the original game, introduced new content and balanced the difficulty level. Now, thirteen years after the launch of The Hell the second part has seen the light of day, bringing even more improvements.

The Hell 2 is primarily a brand new graphics engine offering support for ultra HD widescreen resolutions and allowing for smooth switching between window operation, full screen and frameless window (with the combination of Alt+Enter). The game can run at 20 frames per second (like the original Diablo), although it also offers support for 40, 60 and 80 FPS.

The Hell 2 also includes: fixes for original bugs, support for multiplayer mode (via Hamachi / Zerotier + IPX wrapper), 29 new and modified character classes, 4 difficulty levels, 3 new item slots (gloves, shoes and belts), 3 weapon slots to switch between, enlarged inventory (10x7 instead of 10x4), new opponents, and many other minor things.

The Hell 2 requires Diablo with the Hellfire expansion installed to work. The mod is fully compatible with the version available at GOG.com.
